Ramadan Episode 8: Branch chain amino acid (leucine, isoleucine and valine)
The first supplement I would like to talk about is the one that is essential during Ramadan or even on no fasting days which is BCAA. .
Leucine, isoleucine and valine are three amino acids from the nine essential amino acids that the body cannot create on its own and therefore you will need to take them from food sources. .
Why we need BCAA?
1- Protein synthesis
2- Stop muscle break down
3- Recovery after a hard workout
4- Shut down cortisol levels which reaches the highest levels when fasting. .
We recommend that you take 3 to 4 doses per day to get the best results. Any further questions please leave a comment below. Ramadan Kareem 🌙 #ProteinBarUAE
